IMG_2896Why wrongNews  is a non-count or mass  nounThat means that it can’t be plural or take an indefinite article (a means one, which is a number).  The fact that certain words end with s (like boss, bus or gas ) doesn’t make them plural. For more information, click here.Training

Correct it:  With mass nouns, don’t use an indefinite article (a new ) or try to make them plural (newses):  “I have good news and bad news.”
